. >> isn't time a factor in so many religions that heavens gate they seize on the comet back then. and with the millennium coming up, people are screwing a round assessing their faith, - is this the end? and the fundamentalist are seizing on el ninos destruction of lands - fire and so, with the millennium i think people want to identify themselves with some faith, i'm here the millennium is coming, where is my status? >> and you're quite right and we are seeing all kinds of religious activity around this time and in this society it's spinning off cults and sects, it really actually is. i don't know how long lived they will be but you have a christian groups who are seeing in those terms. but there is a whole other millennial vision that actually can go back to roots and the aquarian age of the hippies in the 60s which sees the new world, the new age, the new order the new light coming down, so it's a fascinating thing. but time, historical events certainly spawn, it's like putting a catalyst into our soupy ecological mix, it creates more stuff bubbling up and coming out. yes, anne
holiday trees instead. >> i am going to guess father john religion contributor has thoughts on this. >> am i angry, am i upset? >> i am not feeling angry from you. >> the reason i am not angry is? th that yes, i think it's silly. it's out of place for people to dedicate so much energy to try to get rid of christmas scenes like this. the good news is when christianity has been persecuted, when it has been outlawed, when people have died for their faith, it hasn't gone away. everybody has an opportunity to make sure their faith does not go away in this christmas season. to live that faith as a family, as a community. what should we do about these i think very small percentage of people who are working to try to get rid of these public expressions of faith? i think we should speak up. that's why i am doing it. that's why i think it's important we have these stories to show what they are trying to do without losing the peace. if our christmas is going to be all about getting a upset at people trying to take away christmas that's silly too. >>s are mu rasmussen did a poll how people say happy h
research on this point. it turns out the biggest recipients is religion and religious organization. i myself give as much as i can. we built a catholic church, for heaven's sake in connecticut. it's pretty rare these days to build churches, most people are tearing them down. my point is people bhor giving to religious operations are not doing it because of the charitable deduction. they are doing it from the heart. >> well, you've got to understand, the point that was -- those organization are -- let's be clear about where this money goes. it goes through organizations who serve vulnerable peeble. we have 46 million people in poverty, a number of people struggling, why does is it ever make sense to reduce the incentive to help those individuals? >> i want to help them. that's not the issue. the issue is how to help. i think what lenny is saying, if you have an economy that is prospering and growing and creating wealth, then the people who have more resources to pony up for all these very, very good -- >> but larry, we don't have that economy. >> it isn't about -- i understand that, bu
, they belong to religions and it will guarantee the security needs and interest of if state of israel and the palestinians. but this is a dramatic change from what barack was doing and it certainly is different from any other idea that came up through the years so i can say that barak under the influence of president clinton did a great deal but the in the end they messed it up primarily because of the reluctance of yasser arafat to make any agreement. i never believed arafat will make any agreement because he was a terrorist. there is a big difference between him and abbas. mahmoud abbas, while he was with yasser arafat said officially and publicly and officially that he was against terror when arafat was conducting terror against the state of israel. so i think abbas was the best possible partner for a peace agreement. he and p.m. fayyad were doing many dramatic changes in the way that the administration of the palestinians is handled in the west bank which are very positive much beyond what most people anticipated that they could do. so they have to get credit and i think they are
a religion. where did the christmas tree come from anyway? >> it came from slavac traditions. early christians were dead set against them. they were pagan trees. then he brings out and atheist to have a fight with him. >> you're an atheist. that's fine. i don't look down on you. >> thank you. >> if you want to be one we're in america be it. why you are messing around with my tradition christmas just leave it alone you and your periband of fascists. >> you called me a fascist. i'm a patriot sir who has taken the crazyette notion that everybody in the country is equal and the government has to treat everybody fairly. that's fascism. >> you said banish christmas trees. >> i did not say that. >> do you know how touchy they get if you mention fascist in the right wing. o'reilly throws it around like nobody's business. let's go to the facts on this so-called christmas tree. let them over whom the fires of hell are imminent: >> do you understand that? calling the pagan tree a christmas tree, bill o'reilly, you might burn in hell. we're not done. i want to give credit to a great point. if b
design and other theories, do it in religion class. and the important part with rubio is while he does seem to be tempering his first line now with mike allen yesterday after he got a lot of criticism for it he still believes fundamentally that you should teach creationism alongside evolution in classes. that's really where this comes from. his history when he was in florida as a state house speaker was a huge fight over evolution education in florida. he came down on the side of the creationists saying they should be able to teach that in school. a reasonable alternative to evolution. whether or not rubio thinks the earth is 4 billion years old he also believes some of the nonscientific theories should be taught. >> people should be able to teach the opposite alongside of evolution and alongside of science in public schools. he's saying in public schools. in other words -- is the same position as rick santorum, correct? >> actually, same position as rick santorum, chris christie has said this. >> bill: has he real
, this is a private, intimate question. i was trying to figure out is this salary, is the religion, is it politics? he leans across the table and says, professor, the separation of powers business -- you don't really believe it, do you? [laughter] he was amazed when i told him it was a noble ideal. as inspiring as our examples in the u.s. may be, i think we all it to the chinese reformers -- owe to the chinese reformers to familiarize them with other possibilities. prior to the financial crisis of 2008 and still to some degree today, many chinese reformers have focused chiefly on the u.s. to the exclusion of other models, drawn by our power as much as our ideals and ideas. i think it is more in power when to our chinese friends -- empowering to our chinese friends to lay out a broader array of possibilities. our chinese friends can see a range of possibilities and see what our universal ideals in promoting human dignity in a range of human institutional designed to get us there so they can craft something that is true to those ideals, but reflective of chinese society. just by way of example, six year

by all people, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender. over the course of the past 20 months, the aside regime has unleashed a barrage of unspeakable -- assad regime has unleashed a barrage of unspeakable terror across the country. more than 40,000 syrians have been killed, countless have been injured. refugees have surged into neighboring turkey, jordan, lebanon, and iraq, taxing the limits of those countries. assad's escalation of violence has reached a point where fighter jets have been used to kill civilians. it is hard to comprehend that happening in any country. that is what has played out. this regime's shocking capacity for wide spread terror may only grow as we see reports of chemical weapons. international institutions have largely remained on the sidelines, held hostage by the reprehensible policies of the russian and chinese governments. the administration was right to initially work through the united nations. but due to russian and chinese intransigence, the syrian suffering has continued. ambassador ford has led the charge in coordinating humanitarian assistanc
